Iman Shumpert Traded to Rockets in Three-Team Deal

The Houston Rockets have agreed to acquire Iman Shumpert in a three-team trade with the Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Knight, Chriss and the first rounder are headed to Cleveland.

The Rockets have been in search of a wing player for the better part of the season.

"Knight is due $15.6 million next season, which would give the Cavs another hefty expiring contract next year to perhaps flip again", Lloyd wrote. The Cavaliers will also continue to look elsewhere as they seek to rebuild a team that now stands at 11-43 on the year.

The 6-4, 200-pounder was the 17th overall pick of the 2016 draft out of Vanderbilt by the Memphis Grizzlies, who waived him October 16, 2017.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association trade call has not yet been completed.

Just over a week ago, Chriss requested either more playing time or a trade from the Suns and it appears he has his wish. The Cavaliers have Ante Zizic and Larry Nance Jr.at center, with Kevin Love potentially returning this season. He signed as a free agent with the Trail Blazers on July 5 last summer.

The move will likely lead to Bogdan Bogdanovic sliding into the starting backcourt next to De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, with Burks coming off the bench for an added scoring punch. Shump is averaging close to nine points per game in addition to three rebounds and two assists. Shumpert is also a fashion guy - another reason why he should fit well with Chris Paul and James Harden.
